Vtiger Aggregated Reviews
Thanks, that’s definitely more what I’m looking for. Also found Avaza which seems promising.
It really depends how large your small business is. At the low end I have tried vTiger and Zoho , as well as building my own custom applications for clients to fit exact needs.
To be honest, vTiger can feel a bit clunky, but there was plenty in there to get the job done in most cases. Zoho wasn’t overly slick, but did have quite a lot of integration points. Either were usable very quickly. Neither would give amazing analytics, but I didn’t need that.
Trello might help for now as someone suggested. I’d suggest though now is the time to start looking at a proper crm.
Look at vtiger. It’s cloud version is extremely good and grows with you.
vTiger is pretty good and inexpensive. $40 a month or so and you get all the modules; invoicing, quotes, workflows, emails, etc.
My team uses vTiger, it’s free if you host it on your own server and very customizable, lots of bugs that need ironing out though but once you have it all right it’s great for emails among other things
I researched pretty much every CRM before deciding to go with vtiger. You can customize stuff pretty easy, they have a great support staff, and excellent documentation for when you’re starting out.
There are few opensource CRM that you can use, I know SugarCRM and vtiger. Both are ugly as fuck and zero appealing but functional, also have enough resources to learn how to work and modify for what you need. And i don’t remember well but vtiger has wordpress integration, or cPanel, can’t tell, because I don’t work with that now. You can create new modules and integrate existing ones for your customers, indeed both have a lot of possibilities.
We used vtiger for years. Vtiger is an opensource clone of SugarCRM , which is a clone of Salesforce to some extent.
We used it because I could self-host on our servers at our colo, it was opensource so we could modify (and we did) annd because it was low/no cost.
I don’t know why when people are trolling for a specific reason (i.e. they’re looking to enter the space) they don’t just say so instead of asking leading questions. OP seems to be wanting to enter the crm space. The fact is, CRM’s is a crowded and reasonably mature space. Unlikely someone is going to come along with the next greates thing, not with Salesforce , Zoho , SugarCRM , etc etc etc already doing this in huge numbers, and doing everything pretty darn well. It’s not like amongst those there’s some horrible array of features that people want that isn’t available.
We use vtiger which is free. And send grid. Cheaper than mail chip.
But we have techs to make this happen.
Without a third party tool. You will have a lot of spam issues
vtiger I looked at this one about a year ago, and I just really couldn’t see our company fitting into their way of doing things. Admittedly, we’re not normal.
No one’s mentioning vTiger Community Edition? If you have an on-premise server, you can host it yourself completely free.
I’m actually going to recommend something different than the rest:
It’s a fully functional CRM, with functionality above and beyond Constant Contact and Salesforce , at a fraction of the price ($36/mo for the full feature set).
It will do the apooint pages and scheduling that you wish, but in addition it is also is able to pull lead form information either directly from your website or via email parsing and drop it into your sales pipelines so you never lose track.
It’s also able to replace mailchimp, providing full email marketing and statistics as well as drip campaigns and conditional campaigns (if customer clicked previous link in an email, send them this email, if they didn’t click the link, send this other email).
The functionality provided is astounding, and I’ve used it since 2006 to build two businesses with multimillion dollars in sales.
We used vtiger in past. Nowadays, we are using Zoho CRM. Vtiger provides free crm software version and Zoho crm is also available in free version. Compare to vtiger, Zoho crm has extra features like Accounting, Campaigns, Case management, Contact management, Marketing Automation, etc,. I got reference from SoftwareSuggest. They provide a list of top CRM software solutions with reviews, comparison, demo, pricing and many more.
I have never used VTiger, but from a quick look-over of its site, but normally programs like that handle their own database structure and you don’t have to worry about it. Get in touch with them and let them know that you’re new to this, and don’t want to break anything. They’ll be able to provide resources you need.
You are looking at a field-service/ticket aware CRM solution. At the top end – Dynamics CRM Sales/Service. I am sure there are a lot of SaaS tools out there that might even include billing. Like Vtiger, Agile , Zoho , etc.
– CRM with Outlook integration
– Simple contract management (or customizale to an extent where you can create your own entity)
– Document management; docs should be attachable to any entity/record types
– Automation, workflows and triggers
– Optional: a client portal for doc exchange – invoices, …
From the lower end, Vtiger offers great value for money; highly customizable (90% code free) and low fees, support is your average Indian dev – but they get things done 🙂
From my research the most competitively-priced seem to be around $20 per user per month.
Btw, if anyone else comes across this thread we ended up going with vTiger, it’s free if you host it on your own server but it definitely has a lot of kinks that need working out, would say having a programmer at your disposal would be necessary if you wanted to set it up yourself.
This CRM is also based on the SugarCRM open source version. However, VtigerCRM is not a feature-for-feature clone of the latter, although it has the entire core functions found in SugarCRM . However, it suite misses other important features like task management, third party integration features and some collaboration. The suite is a good choice for start-ups to medium sized business ventures. In case you need to add more features, it allows you to add your own ad-ons. The use has two choices: to use the hosted version (at $10/month) or download and install Vtiger on their own servers.
I’ve used VTiger on and off for a few years. Not bad, but I’ve always had to do some php editing to get it ready for production use.
I’m glad you liked it. I too enjoyed Vtiger – it’s a nifty CRM and I would’ve stuck with it if not for the somewhat clunky calendar appointments.
I strongly considered Odoo , Vtiger and X2CRM. During the final round though it was between X2CRM and SuiteCRM . SuiteCRM won because of the calendar editing ease mostly and clean dashboard.
Don’t get me wrong, other CRM’s are probably GREAT too for certain businesses, individuals and needs.
For example I think that Odoo , Vtiger and X2CRM are awesome and fully featured products on their own. Zurmo CRM, Espo CRM and Fat Free CRM aren’t that fully featured but they’re lightweight enough to be a good match for lots of businesses.
So If you also want to test a CRM and you want a FULLY featured CRM then you should try: Odoo , Vtiger, X2CRM, SuiteCRM .
-Goodish calendar but not great.
-Complex enough to handle lots of things
-Load of good features (for selling, invoices ,etc)

GRIN games emerged
As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
